Passed away peacefully surrounded by family on Sunday, March 22, 2020 at the Queensway Carleton Hospital. Husband of the late Maria Pia Esulto Sostizzo. Loving father of John Silvio (Stacy), Rossana (Phil), and Valeria (Guy). Proud Nonno of Angela (John), Gina, Dante (Jessica), Dimitri, Angelica (Toliver) and Nicholas (Jasmine) and Bisnonno of Ayla Rose. One of five siblings, predeceased by Giulio, Wilma, Germano and Madelena, from Veneto, Italy. Valerio will be fondly remembered by nieces, nephews, extended family, and friends. A dedicated painter for over 60 years, his many passions were tending to his beloved garden, especially his tomatoes, grapes, fig and prune trees, wine making to enjoy with family and friends and fishing. He especially loved making people laugh. In memory of Valerio, please consider a donation to The Canadian Cancer Society. Condolences, tributes, and donations may be made at www.tubmanfuneralhomes.com.
A funerial/memorial service will be held at a later date. When Spring returns to Ottawa, and family and friends can gather again, we will come together to remember Valerio and Maria Pia. Con amore, riposa in pace...
